Wichita police have identified a man who was found shot to death in a home before a standoff on Sunday.
Officers found the body of 64-year-old Mark Howard when they went to a home in Wichita Sunday afternoon. Officer Charley Davidson says the incident began when police received a shoplifting report.
Officers responding to that call saw 22-year-old Jessica Sanders fired a shot into the ground and then walked to a home.
Davidson says officers found Howard’s body inside the house but left because of safety concerns.
After about three hours of negotiations, Sanders came out of the house and was arrested.
